Thanks! Yes, I think it will crease below the captoe stitching. There is some extra volume for my foot in the vamp area, coupled with the longer captoe, I believe it will result on some creasing on the cap itself. I suspected this might be the case when I ordered, and since this is meant to be more of a casual shoe, it's not really an issue for me.
Thanks! Yes, I will enjoy them with or without the captoe creases.
I chose CXL for this MTO mainly because I really like shoes made out of CXL, but I also thought the Lexington, being a captoe blucher, would be better suited for my purposes if it was made in a more casual leather. I think it can be dressed up in a pinch, but can be dressed down further compared to the regular Lexington. I tried going for maximum versatility within the casual to business-casual spectrum with this pair.
I think you nailed it! Those CXL Lexingtons looks amazing, I love the dainite sole as well.
